|Dr. Kent J. Smith's announcement to the previously unaware, denouncing the survey.|
In case you haven’t heard, Athenians, Ohio University’s brick kingdom in little Athens, Ohio, was ranked 11th in most beautiful campuses in the survey. Its fierce watchdog of a student newspaper, The Post, was ranked 12th for best college newspapers. Its athletic facilities were ranked 6th.

With the convenience of dozens of uptown bars, exceptionally fruitful beer and liquor sales-as highlighted on the survey- and situated hours from the nearest distraction of busy urban life, our town happily drowns itself on a nightly basis.
It's not one or the other; what makes Athens is that combination. It's not drunken stupor; that's just Athens.
